Posted: Updated:

YOUNGSTOWN, Ohio - The Mahoning County Grand Jury has indicted two people for a rash of home burglaries committed this past summer.

26 year old Andrew McCourt of Berlin Center, and 24-year-old Stephanie McCourt of Canfield were handed ten count indictment on charges of burglary and theft.

The indictment states that in July and August of last year, the two broke into eight homes in Mahoning County, including residences in Berlin and Beaver Townships.

The two are accused of taking goods which included firearms and jewelry.

Mahoning County Sheriff's deputies arrested Andrew McCourt near his Mock Road home.

At the time, Jackson Township's police chief Greg Tailon told 21 News that he believed that McCourt was responsible for a series of burglaries in Jackson, Milton, Ellsworth, Berlin, Goshen and Beaver townships.

According to the chief the crimes were similar, in that they occurred during daylight hours and the homes often are not easily seen from the road.
